new york song

this city breathes
by the movements of people

it sings an unexpected rhythm
hiss blare ding honk

the whirling turnstiles of enter & exit
sway stop spin

the screech and idle of taxi and train
speed shuffle turn

alternating notes singing industry
smiles yells heat smell

changes made by people
strive achieve fail succeed

effort and apathy on hundreds of faces
colors flavors agony bliss

its spontaneous melody continues
chill relief clatter sigh
